Tuesday, February 26, Oakland: General Appearance for Tainted Inc. Employees

Please come out and show your support for the four former Tainted Inc.
employees. On September 26, 2007, the DEA raided five locations in
Oakland and San Leandro, allegedly confiscating hundreds of edibles and
460 plants, and arresting Jessica Sanders (30), Michael Anderson (42), and
Diallo McLinn (35). After a press conference on October 4, Michael Martin
(33), who had been on vacation during the raid, voluntarily turned himself
in. All four are charged with conspiracy to manufacture or distribute
controlled substances and are out on bail. Tainted Edibles were available
for patients as an alternative to smoking at dispensing collectives across
the state.

We are scheduled to appear in front of the federal
magistrate Wayne D. Brazil on February 26th to make
our initial appearance and talk about possible
resolution strategies. It is imperative that we have a
strong showing of support and let the DEA and justice
departments know that we think their actions are
unacceptable regarding Medical Cannabis

Please join us in a show of unity. It is hopeful that
we can create awareness with our plight and create a
dialogue with the government about safer alternatives
of cannabis as a medicine, and begin to create real
change for our community. We must hope that the powers
at be begin to understand the benefits of cannabis as
a medicine and that we can all begin to breath freely
in our plight to change the world. Please do come and
stand with us in the face of justice and let us begin
to create change. We are patients, Not criminals and
we must demand that we begin to be treated as such.
There is so much at stake not just for ourselves, but
for the community. Please do what you can to take some
time out of your life to be present for this date. it
would mean so much to all of us in harms way. Stand
with us in our quest for justice and let the world
know we will not stand for this any longer.
